Family Dance Day 2018

Enjoy a jam-packed day as The Place is taken over by an explosion of dance performances and workshops selected especially for families. 

The day features The Buildy-Uppy Dance Show – an ever-changing playground constructed and inhabited by the audience – and Tidy Up, a play of chaos and order finding out if they can ever live side-by-side. 

You'll get to take part in bespoke workshops to help give inspiration to artists from The Place; help Igor & Moreno rethink their hit show by jumping with them and Protein Dance get inspiration for their new show, The Little Prince, learn to breakdance, and Romp & Roll to some great music and much more.
